It was not a good day for the echoes of children at play.
At least not here.
The sounds of summer skin sticking to a sun-warmed slide are many months away,
as is the sound of a young boy’s mom telling him to “be careful!”
A parent’s presence on the adult swing is non-existent.
Though impressions of winter footprints meander through the snow,
it’s been too cold for Johnny and Susie to be outside.
A snow squall makes matters worse.
Temporarily abandoned, the playground is motionless, quiet, without voice.
